Go Back Report # 105


       About September 20, a series of sightings took place in the area of the Azores with observations at Santa Maria Airport and reports by airline pilots flying over the Atlantic Ocean. At the same time there was resurgence in sightings over the Ivory Coast of Africa. During the night of September 27, the pilot of an airliner en route from New York to Lisbon reported an extraordinary source of light which was not a ship and yet seemed to be on the surface of the ocean at latitude 38° 12' N and longitude 37° 36' W.
